Whitney Houston Wannabe Does Cover of 'I Will Always Love You' & Gets Kicked Off Cross-Country Flight [VIDEO]
For one woman on a New York-bound American Airlines flight, a rendition of Whitney Houston’s version of I Will Always Love You got her into a heap of trouble -- and she was removed from the plane by police.
For one woman on a New York-bound American Airlines flight, a rendition of Whitney Houston’s version of I Will Always Love You got her into a heap of trouble.
The woman began her performance shortly after the plane took off in Los Angeles on May 9, but it became too much for fellow passengers long before they even flew over Mississippi. The plane’s pilot changed the course of the six-hour flight and made an unscheduled landing in Kansas City, where police officers escorted the woman off in handcuffs. After being interview by police, she was released without any charges filed.
“The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew,” said Kansas City International Airport spokesman Joe McBride to local station KCTV. “There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane.”
The staff implored the passengers not to take pictures of the arrest, though a few people managed to get a few quick shots of the woman as she was hauled off the plane -- still belting out the tune.
Houston’s own voice was silenced when she was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel on Feb. 11, 2012, the night before the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. The song I Will Always Love You, originally written and performed by Dolly Parton, was featured on the soundtrack to The Bodyguard, in which Houston starred. The film soundtrack went on to win the 1994 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. I Will Always Love You became the best-selling single by a female artist in music history, and Houston became the first act in any category to sell more than a million copies of an album within a single week period.
